On Common Bronzewings,

They were abundant at Round Hill during the week. Through patches of Acacia I was flushing up one or two every 30-40 metres. Maybe there is an inland movement in winter following seeding Acacias???

P.S. I've remembered another sighting from the Hillston area- Ground Cuckoo-shrike.

The other notable event was the total NON-sighting of Common Bronzewings. One observer heard a bronzewing call. At times this species has been seen in high numbers at every observation point. When we looked back at previous counts we found that at the start of winter the Common Bronzewing count is always very low. Where do they go in winter? And why are the Kings breeding up? Our subsequent enquiries have shown that King Parrots are being seen in increasing numbers by residents in the rural areas surrounding the forest and on Dubbo's outskirts.
